This is a blend of black loose leaf teas to create a Lapsang Souchong that is both deep and smoky but silky and light.

It lies between the rich texture and heady aroma of our Tarry Lapsang and the elegant subtleties of our Rare Lapsang Souchong.

It can be enjoyed with or without milk.

Heavenly (2)

Ach, I got ahead of myself in writing my review. The unrevealed source of the fruitcake is actually a double name: M**** and S******.

Heavenly

My favourite afternoon tea tipple is a glass or three of Mild Lapsang Souchong and several slices of rich fruit cake. It’s a marriage made in heaven. Not wishing to advertise, but my favourite easy-to-get fruitcake for these Lapsang sessions is the Cherry Genoa Cake stocked by the large supermarket chain whose name begins with S.

Tasting Notes

Deep notes of peat like a fine malt whisky with a rich smoky aroma.  It can be enjoyed with or without milk.

Quantity

Use 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water.

Temperature

For the optimum infusion use 85°C (185°F) water.  If you prefer milk, use 100°C (212°F) water.

Time

Infuse for 1 - 2 minutes at 85°C (sans milk), and 2 - 3 minutes at 100°C (with milk).

Taste regularly to find your optimum time.

Infusions

You can infuse this tea at least twice. With each careful infusion, different subtleties of flavour are revealed.

Cost Per Cup

40p per cup based on 2.5g of tea per 150ml of water and 2 infusions.

Serving Suggestions

We particularly enjoy this tea with ginger cake, biscuits, or in fact anything gingery.

You may want to experiment by adding a small pinch of our Himalayan Ginger to your pot.
